I did it!

I finally went to the gym tonight! I was only there for 35 minutes and I only ran/walked 2 miles but I kept my heart rate around 150, if I go any higher I have realized I wear myself out really quickly. I was also able to burn 340 calories or almost 7 points for you weight watchers gals! Did you know that 1 point is about 50 calories, fat can make that higher though and fiber can lower that. I am not sure how I am going to make it a habit but hopefully it will happen. I also came home and was feeling motivated, I was able to do I few things I would normally put off.
With tomorrow being Thanksgiving I am not worried about my points I am going to enjoy myself. I have realized though that when I have been following my points I eat so many small meals that my stomach is a lot smaller than normally. If I eat like I normally did I feel really uncomfortable for the next few hours and really am unhappy so tomorrow I will just make sure my portions are smaller! I even made cupcakes from scratch because I felt bad because I bought the pies from Costco.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Great job!! Going to the gym is hard...its a huge commitment!! Good for you for doing those two miles. You have to start from somewhere! You'll look back in six months and LOVE yourself for making a change in your schedule!

Hmm, I want to know how you did that whole calorie you burned to points in ww thingy. I have tried and tried and can't seem to figure it out. I am glad I am not the only one not watching my points today! Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving.

You are such an inspiration to me! when I see your before and after pictures, I am totally motivated again! I look like your before pictures-and I can't wait to look like your after!!!

Have a great Thanksgiving. I keep reminding myself the same thing-I don't have to miss out on any yummy food, I just take a few bites of it!
